In conjunction with Thern, Liquid Waste Technology, CH2M Hill & the US Army Corp, Rugged Control installed 15 RL-05 running line tensiometers (RLTs) to monitor line tension on the winches supporting the Washington Aqueduct Settling Ponds.
Dredging operations often rely on several winch related activities from mooring to the dredge head lines. Rugged Controls instrumented running line tensiometers are a superior choice for decimal point accuracy in payout and tension monitoring. Our design provides a smaller footprint than other models and is rapidly deployable for retrofitting existing winch systems. In combination with our line control displays, they provide real time and historical data to winch operators, bridge crew, and even remote operation centers or headquarters.

Rugged Controls successfully implemented incorporation of its running line tensiometer technology with the US Army Corp of Engineers Dredge Potter.
